National Survey of Long-term Care Providers

Questionnaires, Datasets, and Related Documentation

The National Study of Long-Term Care Providers (NSLTCP) was renamed the National Post-acute and Long-term Care Study (NPALS) in January  2020. The 2020 documentation and survey questionnaires reflect this new study name. This change did not affect the design or content of the 2020 adult day services center or residential care community surveys. Please contact us at ltcsbfeedback@cdc.gov if you have any questions about this change.
